Judge to Sam Lutfi

Go Away ...

You Have No Case

Britney Spears' family just scored a HUUUUGE victory in their legal war with Sam Lutfi -- the judge just THREW OUT Sam's entire case against the family ... finding he presented no evidence that they ever did anything wrong.

Lutfi had filed a lawsuit -- claiming the various members of the Spears family had defamed him, attacked him and breached a management contract he said he had with Britney.

During his testimony, Lutfi slammed the Spears family ... arguing that Britney was an out-of-control drug addict ... and her family wrongly painted him as the villain. 

But today, before the case even went to the jury, the judge decided Lutfi had no case whatsoever against any members of the Spears family ... and tossed his case out of court.

Lutfi tells TMZ he plans to appeal the judge's decision.

This sounds like the right decision to me. With each revelation Sam gave, I realized just how much of a s***bag he was. I don't think Britney's parents did anything but expose him for as a PARASITE and ENABLER. I don't know if defamation and libel are legally the same thing, but the truth is a defense against libel. It appears that is the case for defamation too.

Lo    

I think Sam Lufti is s*** but come on...ask any employee of any restaurant back then how many times they caught her locking herself in bathrooms for hours and sneaking her drinks in soup cups...she was a hot mess...I love Brit but come on...she's got a ton of people around her that worked on her "comeback" let's not kid ourselves here.

Who is the parent    

And don't forget to mention she can seek attorneys fees and cost because of this case being dismissed by the Court. Come on TMZ you post when these celebs spend money but not when they get $$$ it back? Also, I am sure his lawyer will advise him if he appeals that is even going to up the amount the Spears family can get re attorneys fees and costs. Most folks use this as a settlement tactic (if you don;t file an appeal we wont seek reimbursement of attorneys fees and costs) which I doubt the Spears will consider with all the bad blood and all they will file the necessary papers seeking these costs and proceed again if Lufti files appeal (good luck with that those come far and few) and get costs then too.
